Off to Centeen! We met Eric and Mike, to go scootering upstream, do some exploring, then head into the channel. We had the magnums with us, for extra burn time.

We started off in the shallows, headed upstream, and passed the “Bench.” The visibility was absolutely horrible, and it was tough to really see anything. We still kept on, in the hopes that it would clear up a bit, in the channel.. .Not so much. Oh well… We were still having fun, checking out different things, and seeing a bunch of neat bottles. Steve saw a really neat round-shaped one, with a chip in the lip of it. We saw a couple of large carp, and a whole bunch of bass. I did see a couple of the jellies, but not as many as the previous week’s dive. The water is starting to slowly drop in temperature, so they most likely won’t be around much longer.

We eventually dropped into the channel, where the current really picked up. We drifted for a while, then hit the trigger, along with the current. Holy water flying, Batman! What a blast! We came back in, hung about in the shallows for a bit, then ascended. When we got out, it was brought to my attention that I had been “Princessified!” Funny, I did feel Eric touching my gear, but I figured he was turning off a backup light, or something. Nope… I was had. Although, since there is no photographic evidence of this event, I am going to pretend that it did not happen. 🙂
